  1. Only 10 minutes outside with the binoculars gave me a nice reminder of why I love this hobby. 

    Even with bad skies and light pollution.

    The Moon will forever be one of my favourites.

  2. SGL, it's been a while!

      To be honest, I've lost count :D. 

      The weather hasn't been great - but I've not had much observing chance! Hoping to get back into the swing of things though

      Hiya Jonathan...... Nice to see you back on here :happy11:

    4. YKSE


      Weather has been not that good here either, just haveto enjoy the opportunities it gives.:happy7:

  3. Clearest nights when you are at work, cloudiest skies when you're enjoying time away from work. Need I say more?

    1. mrjonathanbrown

    2. gooseholla

      Was off last week, nothing but cloud and rain:(

  4. Show me your eyepiece cases

    I'm sure I've got one or two of your ex eyepieces. I've also got a few of your scopes too .
  5. Exactly what I was thinking . Is John getting some to review?
  6. The 150P dob is the same size (tall) as the 200P, which is the same size as the 250PX, the only difference is how fat the tubes are. How funny that the background music of the video was the same as what I was just listening to (Keep Talking by Pink Floyd) .
  7. 77 notifications greet me upon return...

  8. Show me your eyepiece cases

    Most of my astro equipment has been stored elsewhere for the past few months whilst building work has been going on and stargazing has been patchy at best (due to work/bad weather combination). I'm sure that will change when everything is moved back . It's not a course of treatment I'd recommend for anyone.
  9. Show me your eyepiece cases

    I'm cured of my eyepiece buying impulses. At least for now .
  10. Arrrgh!

    Agreed. When it's clear you need to employ the 'drop everything' (apart from your scope!) tactic to get a decent chance of viewing. It can be several weeks between sessions, so you have to make the most of them while you can.
  11. Pluto anyone?

    Almost exactly how it was discovered too. Well, flicking between, I believe, photographic plates, but it's the same thing
  12. Unusual. NGC6914

    Lovely object and surrounding area. It definitely needs more exposure time though - lots of contrast between the dark nebula behind! Don't want to have to push the data too hard . You've definitely found a hidden gem .
  13. Now that's great customer service Steve, as usual .
  14. Show me your eyepiece cases

    Famous last words... .
  15. Used the forecast yesterday for deciding whether or not to wear a waterproof coat - got both there and back without getting wet - as forecast . Serves as a good day time forecast as well as a night one .
